Just south of Peniche, but north of the famous surf spot Supertubos, is another quality wave called Molho Leste. This is a powerful right point break that can offer great barrels. It breaks off a jetty and is sheltered from the northern winds.
Thanks to its sandy bottom, Molhe Leste can be good for less experienced surfers on the small days. When bigger, it´s only for advanced surfers.
It needs an even bigger swell than Supertubos before it starts working. And if it works, you can expect some fierce (bodyboard) locals in the line-up. Without respect for the wave and the locals, you won’t have a chance!
